Same exact situation. 3.5. Within the top 10 is there any specific order or methodology I should employ to order them?Anonymous User wrote:
+1. I've been trying to break firms down into reaches and targets, and I've knocked out Wachtell, S&C, and Cravath. Are all the other top v20 fair game or are there more firms besides those three who historically don't reach below 3.6?
I'm registered for a large fair pre-OCI. I haven't found out exactly what my schedule is yet, but assuming that I get some interviews in NYC then there aren't enough firms in NYC to fill my 50 bid slots. With a 3.5 would it be better to bid S&C and Cravath or throw bids at DC (which is my home market)?
I don't think specific order in top 10 matters that much, unless you really want to do XYZ work, and a firm does that work better than anyone. But at that level of V10, the firms won't be that different. Maybe if you think your personality would be a better fit, that would be a reason to bid Skadden higher if you're an alpha bro and DPW higher if you're a super nice quiet person. Past that, a 3.5 is looking at a ton of alternate/lottery for NYC, and then interviewing will help you kill it.
